Jillian Conrad

Jillian Conrad’s artistic practice addresses themes of materiality and intangibility. Her sculptures and works on paper look to the details of the physical world to connect the human and the universal, the visible and the invisible. Her work has been exhibited at and supported by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Bronx Museum, Devin Borden Gallery, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Marie Walsh Sharpe Space Program, Headlands Center for the Arts, and Artadia. Conrad’s work has been discussed in numerous publications including Artforum, Art Lies, and the New York Times. She is the Chair of the Sculpture Department at the University of Houston. While in residence at the Dora Maar House, Conrad will be developing a series of map drawings sourced from the landscape around Ménerbes.
